Lemon cakes are highly moist but have a dense texture. The cake is a buttery yet sweet cake. The lemon flavour makes the cake slightly tangy. A simple lemon glaze is used as frosting.

This is a dense cake but still moist. Although the plain banana cake is delicious, as it is, the chocolate frosting makes the cake even more delicious.
Few Tips before Purchasing a Cake:
1. The Baker or The Cake Designer: While selecting the right cake designer, look for references and also some of the previous cakes that they have made.
2. Shape and Size: Cakes come in all sizes. Traditional ones come in several layers. Depending on the number of guests, decide on the quantity so that the right shape and size can be sorted.
3. The Cake Fillings and Icing: While deciding on this, it would be ideal to look into the tastes of the couple. Also some of them are allergic to few nuts and ingredients used.
4. Theme of Decoration: If the wedding anniversary has a theme, ensure that the cake blends into the theme. The cake might or else seem out of place.
Munch on and have a fabulous anniversary !!
